Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, SCD Legal, Paleo, Grain Free Buns/Bread

Ok this is seriously the easiest bread in the whole world! It even looks like a fast food burger bun. It tastes good, holds up well, freezes well, it is like the holy grail. And, it could not get any easier with just 3 simple ingredients.

We've used this with hamburgers and sandwiches both with all the fixings. They held up both times.

So here goes:

6 eggs separated
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup pureed squash

Whip the egg whites and salt until you have fluffy peaks. Blend the egg yolks and squash together. Once the whites are nice and whipped, gently fold in the squash and yolks. I drizzled the squash/yolk mixture from the blender into my whites while gently folding so that I kept the fluff and didn't have too much of the squash go to the bottom. This is what it should look like:

Drop by 1/4 cup fulls onto a pan lined with parchment. Here is our "buns".

 I also decided to try some hot dog buns.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes. Here's what they look like all done.

Viola! Now go enjoy that sandwich!!

Credit goes to various SCD websites, this is NOT my original recipe!

Yes this is Butternut but other squashes would work well like acorn, etc.

Thanks for posting -- looks great. One question though. Do you cook the squash before pureeing it? Or do you puree it raw?

Terri Burges Hirning said...

Hi Gary! Yes, I cook the squash first.
